This microwave 3-Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is great for when you’re craving a cookie but don’t want to make a full batch.
Man Monday Time!
Zach here. Do you ever have those moments when you just want a chocolate chip cookie SO bad? The hankering is so profound it even interrupts your lounging while watching the Walking Dead? You meander upstairs only to quickly become overwhelmed and disappointed when you realize making a cookie is going to take like 30 minutes! But what happens to Rick Grimes!? I can’t wait that long!
Well, that’s never happened to me *cough*, but I have a solution. This chocolate chip cookie literally takes 3 minutes to cook. No joke.
Oh, and the best part? It’s actually enjoyable. To illustrate, let me tell you a TRUE story about this very cookie…
Once upon a time, Sarah and I were babysitting some neighbor kids. I made the mistake of making one of these mug cookies for the kidlets. I put the cookie on a plate, grabbed 3 forks and said, “okay guys, here it is, but you need to share this one while I make more.” Have you ever seen those nature shows where a pack of wolves who haven’t eaten anything in like 42 days claw at each other and bite each other to get at some well-deserved prey? And, as they eat you see pieces of animal flesh flying all over the place, but you can’t ever really see what it is they are eating? Yeah, that happened. This pack of children consumed this cookie in less then 8.3 seconds. I’ve never been so breathtakingly astonished than the moment I witnessed the veracity and ferocity in which their prey was devoured.
3-Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie
- 1 tablespoon salted butter room temperature
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg yolk
- 3 tablespoons flour
- chocolate chips as desired
Mix your butter and sugars together until well combined in a small bowl. Add your salt, vanilla, flour and egg yolk, mix again. Then add your chocolate chips. Toss everything together.
Lightly spray or coat the inside of your favorite Star Wars mug with non-stick spray or vegetable oil. Place your cookie batter inside your mug.
Microwave your cookie for 60 seconds.
Dear Sarah, This is such a fun idea. Love it! Pinned for later. Have a wonderful day, Catherine xo
This recipe is dangerous to have around the house, but it is a risk I am willing to take!

really wanting a cookie for breakfast now!
Why would you add salt if you are using salted butter? That is too much salt. I have had bakers tell me if you are using salted butter then you do not need to use salt in the recipe.
Sarah – Feel free to omit the salt if you prefer. 🙂
I just made it and taste really good. First 3 minute cookie that I liked
Yes! This made my day! Thank you, so glad you liked it. -Zach
I made this but it came out really spongy. Do you have any idea why? Otherwise, the cookie tasted delicious.
That’s interesting! I’m not sure why that would have happened. Maybe your egg yolk was larger than normal? Sorry that happened! My only suggestion would be to try it again and see if it was a fluke?
I’m a baker and this was horrible. The texture is not like a cookie at all.
Not like cookie dough at all!! Very crumbly!! Added some ice cream after baking which helped some. Didn’t satisfy my craving at all!!
I’m sorry this cookie wasn’t to your liking! We have made it a few times and have found it to be very delicious.
This is a fail .. It didn’t taste like a cookie dough and the texture is like a bread
